MindNode Logo
Allows you to create visual outlines of your ideas and responsibilities. Useful when designing your system and for planning projects.

App Description

MindNode is a mind mapping app for Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch).

From Idea to Implementation

Mind maps are essentially visual representations of ideas. A mind map starts with a central idea or thought and then expands as you elaborate on this theme. You can conveniently reshape your mind map as you establish structure. As the desired outcomes start to emerge, these mind maps can help articulate projects and actions in OmniFocus and can provide project support as you work through the tasks that shape these outcomes.

Your mind map can also be viewed as an outline within MindNode or imported into an outlining app such as OmniOutliner once you’re ready to delve into the implementation details (e.g. the timeline of a course that you’re developing).

Designing Your Productivity System

It can also be very helpful to create a mind map of your Areas of Focus (in Getting Things Done speak) as described in this article. It’s recommended that you review and update this mind map regularly to help ensure that each area of your life gets the appropriate amount of attention. This mind map can also be very useful when structuring OmniFocus, whether you’re setting up OmniFocus for scratch or revamping your system.

Additionally, it can be useful to mind map your tags in preparation for configuring or restructuring OmniFocus, as outlined in this article.
